I have been a terrible blogger but here is a catch up from the last few months.

I needed a piece of art for my office at work so Boris and I tried our hand at some acrylic painting.  I am pretty happy with how this one turned out.  I swear it looks even better in person.

Keira has been loving her scooter lately.  She does this funny pose with one leg up.

The kids have been having summer fun at the pool.  It is nearly impossible to get a photo of Chase anymore!  He makes goofy faces as soon as he sees a camera.

Keira has been loving going to birthday parties this year.  She can't wait for her own.

Chase and Pops had a Vikings and Pirates Pops' camp! Chase LOVES his time with his Pops.

Random cute guitar photo.

Keira started gymnastics and she loves it, she is fearless. She looks forward to doing her gymnastics and yoga (if you live in Denver, Kindness Yoga does "kids" yoga while moms do "adult" yoga in a separate room - it is blissful) every weekend.

We have been spending a lot of time at the Stanley Marketplace in Stapleton.  They have a ton of food options, some shopping, and exercise shops.  The kids love Sweet Cow Ice Cream so we have to make regular trips over.  My favorite is probably the Salt Bagels at Rosenberg's Deli.

Keira has very strong opinions about what she wears now. She saw this shirt at the gap and insisted on getting it.  Good thing she looks adorable in it.

Sadly Keira is in a tantrum phase....I can't wait for it to pass.

For Father's day we took Papa to Texas de Brazil.

Boris and his dad also rented sports cars and went for a drive in the mountains, they had fun.

I have the BEST team ever, we always have fun together.  For our summer team building event we went to an escape room (I did the Dorm of the Dead room).  It was a blast!

In fact it was so much fun I dragged the family back to do the Timescape room later that weekend.

We did some fireworks for the 4th of July, the kids loved it.

I gave Keira her first at home haircut, I cut off like 3 or 4 inches, not that you can tell....but she was very excited.

The highlight of the past few months was our recent vacation to Frisco with my parents. We had a great time.

Note:  Keira still managed some good pouting even on vacation.

We hiked to Rainbow lake where we saw some beaver huts and a beaver swimming in the water.

The last night Chase wanted to go to Breckenridge for Crepes so we went on a Mom, Dad, and Chase date.  It was fun and delicious!

I was on Facebook and saw this comic strip - Catana and it reminded me of Boris and myself....cracked me up.

I got my first YogaClub box!!  I was so excited. The first box was at a discounted price so I felt like it was a great deal.

I got a Y back bra from Manduka, it looked plain in the box but looks great on.

I got a Nux Take it easy tank in Peacock (which is teal but I couldn't find a picture of the teal one).  It is really cute on, not too clingy but the back is fun.

And the best part...I got these Tarot Magic leggings from Teeki which I LOVE!

Honestly I was so happy with the stuff I receive I think I will continue with the subscription another month to see if it is as good.

One more vacation to Michigan left this summer...and a birthday for a very excited little girl....then back into school, work, and the fall.

April and May

April and May flew by...a few snow storms...a giant hail storm...another bout of head lice...and poof it is almost summer!

Here are a few highlights.

Keira sure does love herself a puppy pile (so does Sadie).

Grammy had a wonderful birthday party with delicious empanadas.

The kids have been into coloring lately (inspired by their Pops).

A few coworkers / friends and I hit the Aurora mall for Tattoos (#malltattoos #bucketlist #friendsdontletfriendsgettattooedalone).

We may have also followed the trip to Tengu with DQ Blizzards.

I got a bee tattoo and I love it!

Chase completed his Black Belt testing!  I am so proud of him. He is the youngest Omniform Black Belt! He worked so hard for this goal and it was an incredibly hard test.  Congratulations Chase - you're amazing!

Such an accomplishment!

Sadie is getting so big!  I think she is bigger than Stark now.

Leah turned 21 in March so B and I took her to Blackhawk for a Mother's Day / Birthday extravaganza.  We were big losers but we had a blast, we even managed to score free all you can eat crab leg buffet.  

Chase's Black Belt Ceremony...

Look at that happy kiddo!


Random cute dog pic.

This weekend we had a fun packed schedule.  Chase had a play date and B and I had lunch with a friend on Saturday.  We ended the day with a BBQ at the neighbor's house which included a highly competitive adult Jenga game.  B and I both avoided making the tower fall yippee. 

Sunday was our 13th wedding anniversary.  It was a wonderful day.  We took the kids to Krispy Kreme for donuts in the morning and then did some shopping at Park Meadows mall.  My folks watched the kids after that and Boris and I took a stab at some abstract acrylic painting and made some art for my office (it looks better in real life I swear).  We had a great time with that and then went to the Concourse for dinner.

Love you B - best husband ever - Happy Anniversary!!!  

Here is a picture of Keira trying on the wig I bought for a work thing while at the mall.  Long purple hair suits her.

Here is miss thing trying on her new leotard for gymnastics class which she starts next week.  Adorable!!!

Looking forward to summer, nice weather, and more fun!
